We have been forum chat since 2000
The Amarna E Group was my first Internet reality on Egyptology.
A label of....University and in the field current dig. ..would be true for the 90s Amarna E group.
Yes...some went off to become Hall of MAAT.
I know / familiar with some posters from decades ago.
I understand Egyptology from Education to field research and Internet debate is big ta do.
....also respect the personal endeavor of Egyptologists. ...
Christine Hobson is one of my faves
She kicked it showing early Naqada Mesopotamian and Levant influence in Egypt.
GHMB poster Thanos has also enlarged all our insight into Foreign intervention and building signature in Egypt.
The Egyptology Timeline faces a David Rohl revision....or at the minimum. ..a 200 year roll out farther
Back via 2 separate Radio Carbon tests runs which on average. ..= 200 years.
Unless Khufu and Khafre or even Snefru can be moved 200 years...we have a problem.
My personal view of Khufu and Snefru...is they were AWESOME !!
But they were restoration and expanding region trade of extant ruins which are ....???? ... Ancient.
The water erosion on the plateau. ..from Menkaure Mortuary temple... to down by the Sphinx and the frontal Valley and Sphinx temples.
This is 6000 bc. ....7000 bc?.....older?
The Sphinx erosion. ...the Plateau erosion published by Sher and Gigal. ..even Khentkawes. ...
These show granite and other repairs to severe erosion.
This is why Alford and myself see Adoption Theory. ...or Adaption theory**....as RCD data returns prove the
Pyramids were Mortar repaired to near the upper levels well outside 2500bc.
How can Khufu build....what is being mortar repaired....
Before Khufu or his Father Snefru were born?
Christine Hobson signaled the Egyptology side best revise if it's going to have an A Game.
Sufficient evidence given suggests the entire Pre and early Dynastic is need of revision
Gobekli Tepe reminds us that History side does not have all timeline resolved.
Few saw 9000 bce coming.
Nor Robert Schoch showing early Moai on Easter Island were Granite!
The Granite quarry. ...offshore. ..below the sea.
The rising sea of near 400ft from Ice sheet pulse water 1 and 2.... circa 10,000bc +/-
A different Earth.....one which survivors migrate on the seas.
The Western Ur Nile.....North Africa a series of Islands. .long before Dynastic Egypt.
Yet here....Giza plateau was extant and from the Zodiac age of Leo/ Virgo
The Egyptian texts are not speaking to Dynastic Egypt. ....but to an earlier age.
This earlier Zodiac age....is the crisis point.
The draw of history and the Mythology of the Zodiac ages......is Humanity
It is....who and what we are all..... ......from : )
